Video: Kevin Durant Ejected For Shouting Obscenities At Referee

kevin durant yells at a referee.

On Thursday night, the Houston Rockets wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, a feat that seemed impossible considering the Warriors recent run of success.

To make matters worse for Golden State, the team is limping into the playoffs after a rash of injuries has left the team in disarray.

Then Thursday night happened.

The tensions boiled over for Kevin Durant. Late in the first half of the Warriors game against Milwaukee, Durant was ejected after receiving back-to-back technical fouls.

So why was Durant given the two techs? Watch this video and its pretty clear - Durant had very unkind words for the official.

If you can't make out what Durant said to the official, here's allegedly what the star said to official Tre Maddox. Warning: graphic content ahead.

Durant may have been fouled on his way to the basket, but he's clearly in the wrong for cursing out the ref after the non-call.

This is Durant's fifth ejection this season - he never had more than one in a season entering the 2017-18 campaign. Golden State fell 116-107 at the hands of the Bucks.
